RHYTHM PARADISE MEGAMIX

Nintendo



The rhythm is gonna get you!

Seriously. It’s dressed in its stalking best, its weapons are primed and it’s en route to your place right now...

Well, umm, if you have a 3DS and love a really good fun but challenging rhythm game with a wonderful hint of abject madness and wisely decide to buy it.

Mrrf. What a crappy intro.

Anyway, thankfully crappy has nothing to do with this game. Kind of a greatest hits collection, there are over 70 levels to make you laugh, smile, cry and possibly even hurl at various points. But it’s all good – as long as you keep in time. For you must keep in time enough to score enough to advance enough. Enough. Otherwise you’ll have to go the practice makes perfect route – or at least perfect enough to see what slice of beat-driven lunacy comes next.

There’s a fairly unnecessary overarching story of a character called Tibby having fallen from heaven, and a few even more superfluous religious allusions, but otherwise RPM is all class.

From the relatively sane (baseball, boxing, ping pong and, erm, aspirant barbers (well, sane by RPM standards)) to the decidedly bonkers (skateboarding ninjas, seal-training Inuit Mario, acapella blobby blokes, a lumberjack bear and his pussy posse), it’s all about “flow”. Seriously, there’s enough to test even the most seasoned human drum machine here – all accompanied by some delightfully kicking tunes.

Options rock, too, with buttons or stylus as input methods, the ability for four-player local hook-up with only one copy of the game, a café to chill in and a goat to look after. Really.

If you’ve all the metronomic skills of Don ‘No Soul’ Simmons then Rhythm Paradise Megamix may not be for you, but then it may help you improve your one-two-three-four lot in life and become a serious Dr Beat.

take me back to the start...
